How would you classify this jacket's chest (lean, swelled, draped)? Keep in mind that this coat is at the basted stage, so it'll gain more shape when concluded.

Amazing project, which reflects the greatest value of his blog for me: a more adventurous point of view. For example, I'm certainly going to talk about this with my tailor and, perhaps, a nice garment will come up from the inspiration got from Crompton's writings.
The work on the seams is really great and gives away the bespoke provenance through its preciseness. The only point where I disagree with the intended jacket design is about the hip pockets, the lack of, a leather jacket without (hip) pockets is just not right for me. The sketched pockets were nice and, in my opinion, they would fit within the simplistic design.
